Mission Statement
The Preucil School of Music seeks to provide excellence in music and early childhood education based on the Suzuki philosophy of instruction.

The Preucil School of Music is dedicated to the development of ability in all children. We teach according to the philosophy of Shinichi Suzuki, who has proven that particular talents are not inborn, and that all children can develop their abilities in music and other areas to a high level if they learn in the manner that they learned to speak their "mother tongue."

The Preucil School offers excellence in early childhood education and music instruction for students of all ages in a caring, nurturing environment. It helps parents and children to share in the learning process, serves as a center for involvement in varied early childhood and musical activities, and attempts to create a rich musical and educational environment in the community.

The Preucil School believes music training is life training, of equal importance to all children regardless of economic status. It aims to keep tuition affordable, and offers aid to those students in need of assistance who demonstrate a desire to learn.

This Day in History: Elvis Presley dies in his Graceland home |

On August 16, 1977, Elvis Presley was found dead at the age of 42 in his Graceland mansion in Memphis, Tenn. His early passing was mourned across the world, with legions of fans flocking to his mansion to pay their respects.

Born in Tupelo, Miss. in 1935, Presley was destined for a career in music. For his 11th birthday, he had asked his mother for a rifle but she instead gave him a guitar. At 19, Presley entered a recording studio in Memphis to record two songs for his mother as a birthday present. Studio owner Sam Phillips liked Presley's voice and asked him to record a rendition of the R&B song, "That's All Right" for his Sun Records label.

The recording topped the local chart, and within a year Elvis' contract was bought by RCA for a then-record of $40,000.
